Re: Met office issues yellow alert as temperatures set to hit 40 C inland

According to my forecasts, I doubt 40°C except possibly in Nicosia with 'urban island' effect.

Re: Not a good example from future PM

Am neither saint nor mouse, but I don't make our spats public, nor am I a public figure. The first stone was cast by the participants, not by those who accuse Boris, and if this row became public it was because it was obviously excessive. The building looks well-constructed and if the next-door neig...

Re: Rory Stewart gets the Hedgehog Vote

Don't agree that Rory stood head and shoulders above the rest, he was the only one not truly committed to Brexit, added to that he has obviously adopted the Corbyn dress code. He was fully committed to Brexit, as he was starting where May left off. OK, no tie, so what? You don't judge a book by its...

Re: Israeli tourist hospitalised after fall in Akamas

Legend has it that a cub reporter wrote an article about a dog killed on the road and the editor published it because there was no other news.

The Israeli guy had some bones broken, OK, but is that news? A&E treats tens of injuries every day but they don't make the news.

18 June PM debate: 5 'candidates'

What a farce! Not a single candidate showed PM potential. Boris Johnson: contributed absolutely nothing germane to the subjects. He waffled around some peripheral thoughts, such as how he helped a citizen into an Irani jail; she is now on hunger strike. He also stressed his grandad was Muslim, so th...

Re: Rory Stewart gets the Hedgehog Vote

Let me speculate. As I said, RS has been put second to BJ by the bookies (and they are usually pretty good at forecasting). Imagine BJ wins/RS second; RS has said he would not serve in a BJ government, so he will become a powerful backbencher opposed to the BJ no-deal. I can foresee fireworks in Wes...

Re: Rory Stewart gets the Hedgehog Vote

I see the bookmakers have now put Rory Stewart in 2nd place, behind Boris, quite a leap of faith.

Heaven help the Conservatives, oops, UK, if Boris does, as expected, win. :evil: :evil:

Re: Orange storm warning for inland and mountains, hail, flooding could occur

881 lightning strikes in last 3 hours. Wow!
Happily, none of them closer than 10 km from here but it must have been spectacular between 16:30 and 17:30, possibly in the Nicosia region.

Devil No I don't see him as one with oratorical greatness, I see him as a complete time and money waster. You see him as a man equal to Greek philosophers, that's your view and in spite of what you say, I disagree. Each to their own. complete time and money waster??? You obviously know nothing abou...

Re: MPs use House Brexit debate to push ouster of British bases

IMHO, there is nothing in common between Chagos and Cyprus. The feeble thinking of CY politicians comes out to the fore every now and again, this being a non sequitur example, especially as the UK has said many times that it will maintain its strategic bases here. The sound bites of the island's low...

Re: Cyprus Driving Licence No.

So far, 25 posts on this subject, which is banal.

So far, 3 posts on 'Traffic offences in May topped 25,000'

Have we lost our sense of proportion, argy-bargying on banalities, while we drive like idiots?
